Book 1 Random speculation

Heya,

This a bit long after the fact, but back when gobwin knobs turn started right after the wounded dragons had been killed by Ansom and Jillians desperation strike against the uncroaked warlords, and Stanley decided the battle was lost and to flee?

Theoretically, couldn't stanley have lead all of the remaining dragons to first croak ansom and his group, then use their remaining move to personally lead a strike on the rest of the siege in the column?

attacking with your overlord is like capturing with your king, hard, effective, and suicidal

It was possible for Stanley to croak Ansom's group himself by using the dragon relay trick that Hamster had not developed yet yes. Following that by taking out enemy siege would leave Stanley in the open to be croaked by any of the coalition's archers and remaining archons and we know Charlie had quite a few in the general area.

Capturing with your Queen, on the other hand ...

... case in point, if Wanda had pulled those maneuvers, she couldn't have failed. She was prophesised to get the Pliers after all, wasn't she? So Death would strike unlucky unti she got the Pliers, and then even more, cause UltraZombieMakeMachine Mode Ac-ti-va-teee!

Of course, Parson didn't know that at the time.
The whole point of this is lost if you keep it a secret.

the cheif warlord is closer to the queen. also she might have just been captured, turned, and in a thousand turns picked up an entirely different arken tool. relie on a profacy as a shield, and you get hoisted on your own petard. read "the branch" it makes this point beautifully

On the other hand, Ansom's combat abilities are much more queen-like than king-like. Broken analogy is broken.
